The Attraction

At one time, Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania (formerly Mauch Chunk) was the #2 attraction in all of the United States, topping every other attraction other than Niagara Falls. This happened in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The draw?  It was the Switchback Gravity Railroad, a 9-mile loop of track, meticulously engineered to move coal.....but converted to the world's first "roller coaster."  The town was a thriving economic center.

Today, Jim Thorpe is positioned to become a new economic center, with the advent of the Jim Thorpe Aerial Sky Tram.  This spectacular innovative engineering marvel will soar above the Lehigh River Gorge from downtowm Jim Thorpe up to the top of historic Flagstaff Mountain.

Be sure to read about the Team Behind The Tram on this website to learn more about the project.
